The good news is, Karen Elson has promised to put out a new album this year. That’s really all the confirmed details I know, though I understand that she’s still affiliated with Third Man Records and has been recording in Nashville. She’s been performing live with some regularity, including a duet with Michael Stipe at the David Bowie memorial and an appearance at Dylan Fest. And of course, her day job keeps her busy as well. Take your time and make the best album you can, Karen, no pressure. It’s just that six years is a really long time.
